Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our long-term care grade. In a long-term care setting, the primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 91.237114 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be a bit lower than we expected but still a respectable figure. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition, this facility received excellent health inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better scores in that category, with an A-. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. While this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Another strong feature for this facility is that it received an impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B. We scrutinized the levels of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the number of hours the nurses were with residents, in determining our rating in this category. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last area we graded was short-term care. This nursing home received an impressive short-term care score this year, with a grade of C. While this isn't as strong as a few of its other category grades, this is still a respectable rating in this area. In our short-term care rating, we attempt to craft a valuable gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze a facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. We weren't able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last item we looked at in this category is the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 4.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. This figure was below average.
